The Islamic Emirate of Takiran is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by Anwar Al-Awlaki with an iron fist, and remarkable for its teetotalling pirates, frequent executions, and anti-smoking policies. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 3.89 billion Takiranis are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government juggles the competing demands of Defense, Law & Order, and Spirituality. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Jamila. The average income tax rate is 93.8%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Takirani economy, worth 529 trillion Takirani Pesis a year, is highly specialized and mostly made up of the Arms Manufacturing industry, with significant contributions from Trout Farming and Furniture Restoration. Black market activity is rampant. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an impressive 136,245 Takirani Pesis, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

A proud mining community is considering a rebellion after the Capital officially renamed them 'District XII', people who make the leader's blood boil get boiled, the arms industry is strictly regulated, and the Counter-Terrorism Unit has been nicknamed "Big Bad Wolf" for its tendency towards urban demolition. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Takiran's national animal is the Lion, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Islam.

Takiran is ranked 162,407th in the world and 31st in United Empire of Islam for Most Pro-Market, scoring 7.78 on the Rand Index.
